  1. A really amazing set! One of the best live recordings of the Stones.
  2. Hey everyone. It has been a while! When the whole web site changed, I got locked out and kind of disappeared. I just tried my old user name and password and it worked! I was at the Night for Neil. It was awesome. There were a few things I would have done differently, but kudos to the organizers for finally pulling it off. Just a note, the guitarist for Permanent Waves is in my band, so I had some inside knowledge of the behind the scenes happenings. Geddy and Alex were there, but apparently there is some politics going on - I am not going to start rumors so enough said. I thought the opening 2112 segment with the violins and electric cello was unreal. Dave Barrett is a long time associate of the band and an amazing player. I am biased but I thought Permanent Waves stole the show, only because they played some of the bigger hits. The deep cuts are great for the fanatics (of which there were many), but the crowd reaction to Freewill and Spirit of Radio exceeded anything that Solar Federation got in response. It was a nice mix of music and tributes. of course they played the US army version of Time Stand Still - gets me every time. It was nice that Neil's sister and brother came out at different points. Really glad I kept my tickets for 2.5 years!
  3. They were freaking awesome! If I could figure out how to post pics / video, I would.
  4. If you are in Toronto, there is a Rush tribute band playing at the El Mocambo on Friday night. They are really good! We have a father / son guitar combo in our band and Eric the son is playing guitar at this show. He is extremely talented and nails Alex's parts. The drummer is Kim Mitchell's regular drummer.
  5. Can't wait to read the interview Rod!
  6. I really enjoyed Genesis on this last tour. I thought it was a great show and Phil and the band seemed like they were having a great time. And the fans appreciated it, so who's to say it is wrong? As far as money, I believe Phil has some big divorce settlements, so he may not have as much left as we think.
  7. Music is so important to me. I knew I wanted to be a drummer when I was 5 years old and hitting pots and pans with sticks from the back yard. I was in several bands through my early 20's but my parents brought me up right and the couple of chances to give it a shot, I stayed in school. I stopped playing for 20 years, had a couple of kids and then the urge hit again. Put an ad in the local newsletter looking for aging rock stars. We eventually formed a pretty good band and I will never forget the first gig at a local bar, packed with friends. What a rush! A couple of different bands later still going and loving it!
